Reblog: We Are All Creators Living in our Prime

 

Poet and scholar Uhuru Waga Phalafala wrote this wonderful post on our creative birthright, saving me the time and trouble.

Her blog is amazing, brimming with cogent observations as an artist and participant in global culture. This post speaks to my soul about how we are made for creative work, gifted with our senses, our ability to compare, combine and create, and our desire to share.

She talks about how all of our experience is fodder:

“You see, it’s all about appropriation. Creativity that is. It knows no bounds. What you see with your eye, hear with your ear, taste with your tongue, touch with your fingers, and smell with your nose, all interpret into a creation. It is a continuous flow of ideas, smells, tastes, and feelings; it is a mating of sensations secreting creative juices that give birth to what we refer to as ‘fresh’ and ‘new’—creation is an offspring of inspiration.”
